Taxi Panic

The one thing I love about New York is the taxi services. The one thing I always wanted to do was to pull a Carrie Bradshaw. I wanted to ride a cab at least once in my life. I wanted to put my hand high in the air, let a cab stop right by me, hop in, tell them where I am going, and just go.

Eventually, I finally caught a cab that was allowing me to do it. That's when I began to regret it.

You know those stories they tell you about New York City traffic. From the way it sounds, it makes you believe that the services are always slow and jammed back. Once I got into the cab, I realized my assumption was the total opposite. The traffic in New York, especially in Times Square is faster than the speed of light. I felt like I was in one of those Fast & Furious movies. I was holding onto my seat for dear life.

We finally arrived at Madison Square Garden and I was so glad to be there. I paid the drive and got out of the car with my hand next to my heart. I had to make sure I didn't leave it behind. The whole ride was a moment I would never forget. I walked into Borders, hoping that I would never have to go in one of them again.

Sadly for me, I had to go to a few more locations. Barnes and Noble along with NBC studios were far away from each other. Because of that, I had no choice but to take a cab. I got into them two more times. As for what I did when I was in there. I think I'll let your imaginations figure that out.
